Hospital: Caroline takes her personal items out of the hospital storage bag, but when she puts on her vervain necklace, it burns her skin. It's not long before she vamps out, and when she catches sight of her game face in the mirror, she struggles not to scream. Then the fangs come out and she can be silent no more. Unfortunately, Nurse Haynes comes running at the wrong time. Caroline grabs her around the neck and shoves her against the wall, because this is The Vampire Diaries and that has to happen at least once per week. It's a contract thing. She insists the nurse cannot tell anyone what she's seen. Because she knows nothing about her new powers of compulsion, Caroline's surprised by her victim's compliance at first, but then she's just thrilled. "Good, because I'm starving." She rears back her head, bares her fangs and downs some fresh hot nurse juice. Commercial.
Carnival; Night: Bonnie informs Elena that they're out of Bart and Homer dolls and Team Jacob tees. DO YOU GEDDIT? Elena says she'll get some from the science club. Wait, what? [Clearly, they're growing them in petri dishes. Or, their carnival booth is the least popular. - Zach] Oh, who cares. This scene is just here for Bonnie to meet a cute carny named Carter, who calls her "beautiful" and tries to help her fix the karaoke speakers, so that later he can die a painful death as all persons of color (save Bonnie) on this show must.
Lockwood Mansion: Brick House is rifling through his late brother's study when Tyler finds him. Brick assures Tyler he's just looking for an old moonstone that belonged to his mom. Ty doesn't know anything, so he suggests Brick ask Carol. They then leave for the carnival, but Tyler takes one last look at the study, over his shoulder.
Carnival: Damon and Jeremy meet up. Here it is. Jeremy's going to freak and try to take on Damon or scream holy blue murder or kick him in the nuts or something, right? Wrong. He utters a few threats about outing Damon to Mystic Falls and that's... it. Damon quickly takes the boy in a chokehold, shows him who's boss, and how easy it is to rip a protect-o-ring off a human's finger. When he releases Jeremy (whose hair looks better this week), Damon says, "If you want to tell people what I really am, go ahead and try. I will shove this ring so far up your ass -- you'll really have something to choke on." And with that, he throws it back at the Germ's head and walks off.
